Located in the heart of Southwest Georgia, Abraham Baldwin Agricultural College’s Bainbridge instructional site includes 173 acres of oak and pine trees close to the beautiful Flint River.

Bainbridge students can complete the first two years of the B.S. programs in Biology, History and Government, and Writing and Communication at Bainbridge before transferring to ABAC Tifton for the final two years.

The incumbent will teach courses in American Government and Public Policy / Public Administration, broadly understood. The incumbent’s teaching load will consist primarily of courses in support of the Core Curriculum, but they will also have the opportunity to offer courses in support of the History and Government B.S. degree. The ability to teach research methods, at the level appropriate for the undergraduate major, is desirable. The successful candidate is expected to be adept at the use of various instructional technologies. The courses to be offered may include both traditional in-class/on-ground courses, as well as hybrid or online offerings.
